Master of Education in Second Language Acquisition, Bilingual Education, and Literacy (SLABEL)
This is an innovative program that combines literacy theory, knowledge and practice with second language acquisition (SLA) theory, knowledge and practice. With half the classes coming from the education field and half from the applied linguistics field, candidates will receive an interdisciplinary education that will have immediate application for K-12 language arts, English, and content-area teachers, who increasingly find themselves in classrooms with children who are bilingual, multilingual and emergent bilingual.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible for an endorsement in second language acquisition.
